British Gaming League: New Dota 2 weekly and summer tournament provider emerges

A new series of UK Dota 2 tournaments have been announced.

The British Gaming League hopes to run weekly Dota 2 tournaments, as well as a 16-team 'major' in summer 2017.

Rafee Jenkins (aka RJ), the person behind the initiative, has told Esports News UK that around eight teams take part in the weekly matches, with plans to expand this to 16 in the future.

While the weekly competitions don't have a price pool, the organisation is looking to work with some Dota websites to sponsor the summer tournament and provide prizes.

And the league hopes to move into League of Legends and CSGO in the future.

"The British Gaming League, or BGL for short, is an organisation which aims to provide the British public with professional and accessible eSport tournaments on a regular basis," RJ said.

"This organisation is comprised of a small group of talented individuals that want to help the UK scene blossom, providing platforms for players to show their skills and to help other talented people to find their way into the spotlight."

 

"Currently, we are focusing on Dota 2. However, we have plans to move into League of Legends and CSGO. To support these games, we are planning to run weekly tournaments, similar to our UK Dota 2 Cup."

 

"Currently, we are focusing on only one major eSport: Dota 2. However, we have plans to move into League of Legends and CSGO. To support these games, we are planning to run weekly tournaments, similar to our UK Dota 2 Cup, so that people can get more involved with the community and prove their skills on the battlefield."

RJ added: "To help aid the UK scene, we are planning on running a 16-team Dota 2 'major' in the summer of 2017. After circulating a poll, 78.1% of people stated that there are not enough UK-based tournaments for Dota 2 teams. We are already on track to fixing this, working with teams to produce the highest quality tournaments for the teams.

"The major has only recently been announced, so we are looking to release more information on a later date."

The British Gaming League team consists of RJ, Mr.Fabled (of Perilous.Raze) and Mzzy (Team Solid). Dom from Team Solid is also looking after the group's work in League of Legends.
